What We Say/Write About the Box

One of the most effective artistic strategies is in our opinion the poliphony, repetitions, mixing images and bodily acts, lack of clarity, multitude of languages, attempts at translation, creating gossip and saying what is untrue. In this way we will expose the spaces of fear provoked by a tent with human closed inside. Is a box ethnic? It threatens. Does it exist in reality? Fear, as one box leads us to imagine multiple boxes.

Does the Box Speak/Write to Us?

The tent box has a definite place on an imaginary timeline, it is past, it's backwardness, primitivism, barbarity. Life in bad conditions. Does the box rebel? Does it want change who/what is inside?

The Space Outside the Box, Is It Safe?

The space outside the box is a space of normality, but it is filled with fear of the presence of the tent box. This space talks, it is full of images. In contrast with the imaginary body of a barbarian or stranger living in the tent, the bodies outside are under control. They are packed, presented, stamped and secured. Civilized bodies filled with fear of imperfection, incompleteness of dress, exposure, unmasking. Fear of contact, dirt, aging. The box has to be moved. It is a threat. It causes an explosion of imagination, death, war and total annihilation. Fear of was. Imaginative memory of was among people who have not experienced it. The legacy of fear.
